Rita Byrd

In 1984, she began her dental career as an office administer and a registered chairside assistant with the first orthodontic practice in Franklin. Her love for Franklin & Williamson County and her desire to help led her to a career as a top-producing real estate agent from 1987 to 1997.

In 2012, she returned to the dental field as office manager for Dr. Burcham. She says,”…the most rewarding aspects of my job in office coordination and administration is developing and maintaining close relationships with our wonderful patients.”
